I've been visiting Mamacita's for about 20 years, starting with the Kerrville location. The San Marcos location is always a great place to visit. The food is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. I think the manager has been the same one since they opened in San Marcos. The wait staff is always first rate.

After spending the day at the outket stores, I checked trip advisor for a good Mexican food place and Mamacitas had mostly very good reviews. My wife and I ate there and were not disappointed. The salsa and green dip sauce were excellent. Queso was very good. The tacos and enchiladas were also tasty. The atmosphere was the best. The... More

Momacitas has awesome magaritas and seafood and Mexican food and their dessert is a must try. We ordered the fish Vera Cruz and queso flameado. They both were teriffic. Try the Midori margaritas by the pitcher. Will go back asap.

It was good, nothing bad about it. Who doesn't love Mamacita's. It's just that for me it has become not so unique and comparable to the same old same old of Olive Garden etc...

their food is pretty average nothing outstanding, it doesn't take long to get seated and have your food in front of you. The service is very good usually pretty friendly. Not bad for the price.

Like another reviewer, I love their flour tortillas, so save room for them. Butter them while hot and add Splenda or other sweetener, and that's your dessert! Enchiladas, taco salad, tacos, and Spanish rice and boracho beans are wonderful! Service is always good. Tea and water glasses are constantly filled. Mmmmm, good!

The food and service are always superior. Green Sauce with lite crisp chips are a real treat. Enchiladas and taco salad are Superior. You are able to make your own taco salad by adding your own beef and queso cheese. Can't wait to come back.

I live in Austin and drive down to San Marcos (30min trip for me) about 3-5 times a year to eat one of my favorite meals in central Texas. The dining room is a large open space with a large fountain in the middle and colorful seats. They make fresh corn and flour tortillas, which is always a treat. I... More
